Dallas Young has a smooth visit to Arkansas | KLRT
FAYETTEVILLE – The talented cornerback of Gardendale (Alabama) Dallas Young enjoyed a very good visit to Arkansas this weekend.
Young, 6-1, 180, was one of nine official visitors to Arkansas. He committed to Arkansas on Dec. 29 on a long list of other schools. After the official visit over the weekend, Young explained how it went.
“The tour went well, I really enjoyed it,” Young said. “That was probably the most fun time being here, with my game visit. We have a really good class coming in, and I just want all the fans to just believe in being good, and don’t have not just one winning season, I want it to be consistent winning and dominating. That’s my biggest thing and hopefully we get those two linemen who have come down. They’re pretty big and I’m going to get them. would love on my team. But other than that, solid visit for everyone.”
Young is recruited in Arkansas by Dominique Bowman. He developed a good relationship with Bowman.
“I love it,” Young said. “He’s a very technical guy. He’ll break it all down with the footwork, the way you move, the coaster, everything, so it’s really the mechanics with him.
Young said the official visit helped ensure he made the right decision on Dec. 19 about his future school.
“Most definitely, yes,” Young said. “It just reassured me that there is better for me out there.”
Young traveled to Arkansas for day-long scouting visits, but the trip gave him more access to the team’s current players.
“Yes sir, we can hang out with them a lot more and just be with them,” Young said. “It was a very fun experience.”
It was a fun experience Sam Pittman and the staff had for the players on Friday night that turned out to be the highlight for Young.
“Probably Friday night media day,” Young said. “They had a role for us, we got exhausted and we kind of danced and everything, it was kind of fun.”
When Young joined Arkansas, his recruiter and future coach was Sam Carter. On Sunday, he spoke about Carter’s transition to Bowman as well with Sam Pittman’s role in recruiting.
“It was pretty tough,” Young said. “Coach Carter, I talked to him and he talked to my mom almost every day, so when Coach Bowman came, it was just to trust Pitt. That was my biggest thing because really, I signed up for Carter, but I also signed up for Coach Pittman He’s a down to earth guy, just loyal to you, so I made sure if I sign up, then I sign up. towards the University.
Anthony Brown was his player recruiting host. Some of the recruits said Young was one of the vocal leaders for the Class of 2023. He also talked about that and also talked about his dream school growing up.
“My dream school was Florida State, so I thought I was going to Florida State all through the summer of 10th grade,” Young said. “I went with my hairdresser once, he’s an Arkansas fan, and I never even thought about going to Arkansas. I went there and it changed everything, my whole thinking about Arkansas. So when I saw that it changed me, I was talking to a lot of people in Alabama or just guys I know down south who really don’t think about Arkansas, (telling them ) to just think of them and come up and visit, that’s all I can do. If you like the visit, I know I got you.
Young is Arkansas’ only committed defensive back in the Class of 2023 right now, but they would have struggled to find a better base for what will likely be a secondary group of talented rookies.
